When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to detect a device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are far more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account during the sign-up process, thus you're able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
